Rising of Matariki

Updated: Jul 7, 2018

Today marks the rising of Matariki and I have been invited to lead the 4 year old program at Child's Wonder in Papamoa. The tamariki are learning about the letter 'w' this week, so I shared a new waiata with them. They learned about the nine stars of Matariki and their meanings. Then we all came together around the art table and created hand print stars. These little helping hands will now shine in the sky of my third book which is currently being illustrated. Thank you Childs Wonder.
